Morningstar TriStar MPPT charge controllerMorningstar TriStar MPPT solar controller with TrakStar Technology™ is an advanced maximum power point tracking (MPPT) battery charger for off-grid photovoltaic (PV) systems up to 3kW. The controller provides the industry’s highest peak efficiency of 99% and significantly less power loss compared to other MPPT controllers.

The TS MPPT 60 features a smart tracking algorithm that maximizes the energy harvest from the PV by rapidly finding the solar array peak power point with extremely fast sweeping of the entire I-V curve. This product is the first PV controller to include on-board Ethernet for a fully web-enabled interface and includes up to 200 days of data logging.


Maximum Battery Current 60 amps
Nominal Maximum Solar Input
12 volt battery bank 800 Watts
24 volt battery bank 1600 Watts
48 volt battery bank 3200 Watts
Nominal System Voltage 12, 24, 36 or 48 volts DC

My MPPT Morningstar with Meter


My MPPT Morningstar with Meter 60 amp I will put it up against any other MPPT Solar charge Controller I have owned 2 ! I rate it a 10 One word Decribes this MPPT Is Awesome I have three 135 watt Kyocera PV solar panels & Im putting out 30 amps easy I love it Great Great System

AltE store and Morningstar for a win win combination


of Quality and value together. I ordered the controller and meter together. Price may seem a bit high but when compared to any other company I have found AltE store actually had the better price. Delivery was quick too.

This is a simple to hook up and setup controller. Although it can ...

Great Charge Controller And Great Customer Support


First, this is a great charge controller. Bought it to use with my 400Watt solar system. It was very easy to hook up and I can now view my solar data remotely to see how well my system is doing.

AltE is definitely a great company to do business with. They went above and beyond to take ...
